UNLV @ Air Force
Current record: UNLV 2-9; Air Force 8-3
What to know
After two matches on the road, the Air Force Falcons are heading home. The UNLV Air Force and Rebels will go head-to-head in the Battle of Mountain West at 3:30 p.m. ET on Friday at Falcon Stadium. The Falcons will still rise after the victory, while the UNLV will find a way to control the ship.
It may have taken three times longer to get the job done, but the Air Force finally got the results they were hoping for last Friday with a 41-39 victory over the Nevada Wolf Pack. The team accumulated 17 points in the first inning and built on those points to win. WR DeAndre Hughes there was a dynamite game for the Air Force; he rushes into two TDs and 279 yards out of 23 carry. Hughes’ longest run was 52 yards in the second quarter. Hughes’ stellar performance established his single-game high of the season.
The Air Defense Force’s air defense was also present, as it confused the Nevada attack line in firing the QB Strong Carson seven times with a total loss of 46 yards. Heavy lifting done by DT Jordan Jackson and DL Christopher Herrera, each person loaded two sacks.
Meanwhile, the insurgents came up against the San Diego State Aztecs last week, 28-20. UNLV’s loss shouldn’t obscure WR .’s performance Steve Jenkins, who caught five passes 176 yards long, and QB Justin Rogers, who passed two TDs and 305 yards in 21 attempts.
The Air Force are the favorites in this match, with an expected win rate of 17.5 points. They might be worth a chance against the disparity as they are currently on a two-game ATS winning streak.
Air Force is now 8-3 while UNLV is 2-9. Some stats to watch out for: The Falcons are 243rd worst nationally in passing yards per game, with just 90 average. The Rebels experienced some struggles of their own as they stumbled into the match with the 192nd most allowed passes per game nationally, skipping 259.4 on average. Maybe one of these Achilles heels will get in the way of the losing team.
